How And When To Replace Your Boat Mattress

January 26th, 2012

Many people who are new to owning a boat do not initially realize that the proper maintenance of a boat mattress can be very different from the mattress they have on their regular beds. A boat mattress has to live in a far more moist environment than is typical for a mattress, and this can make it vulnerable to becoming musty or even becoming a home for mold. If your mattress is old, used, or you just don’t feel comfortable sleeping on it, you should plan to replace it so that you can get a good night’s sleep.

When you are looking for a boat mattress, you need to understand that they often don’t use the sort of easy standard sizes that regular beds use. You will need to take measurements of the length, width, and depth of the frame the mattress will be sitting in. If it is irregularly shaped in some way, you may even want to make a paper template of the frame so that you can provide it to a company that makes custom mattresses. This will allow them to ensure that they create something that will make use of the allowable space perfectly.

You will probably have some idea of the type of material you want to use for your boat mattress based on what has been comfortable to you on your regular bed. You should take the difference in environment into account, however. Someone who finds that memory foam is comfortable but makes them too warm in a heated home may feel that the extra heat these hold is welcome if their boat tends to be a little chilly. On the other hand, a latex mattress is less responsive to temperature and will behave more consistently in different environments if you intend to go boating in many climates.

When you are ready to order your boat mattress, remember that the most important thing you can do to assure that you get a good night’s sleep is to buy a high quality product that will be ready quickly. There are companies in the United States that make excellent mattresses to your specifications and can have them to you very fast so that you can enjoy your time on your boat even more.
